About Sharron Mangum


On September 6, 2010, Sharron Mangum, a black woman and college graduate, thought she had won the jackpot at age 44. After seven months as a temporary worker handling the responsibilities of the Executive Director of Administrative Operations (EDAO) in the College of Social Sciences (CSS) at Loyola University New Orleans (LOYNO), she was appointed full-time, handling those same responsibilities, testimony to the quality of her work.

Ms. Mangum, a person of strong Christian faith, now happily envisioned a career working in a highly respected faith-based campus community.

Ms. Mangum came to Loyola with the education, experience, skills, motivation and charitable commitment that made her a valuable asset to the Loyola community. That is evidenced in her bio- sketch posted on Loyola's website which reads:
